DeMerit on Rooney: 'He can't do it on his own'

As we told you on Tuesday, Vancouver Whitecaps FC captain Jay DeMerit is in Bristol, Conneticut this week working as a guest panelist for ESPN FC's World Cup coverage. Watch the video above to hear what DeMerit had to say about England striker Wayne Rooney. The 'Caps centre back played against Rooney in the 2010 FIFA World Cup as a member of the U.S. men's national team. 

England is set to open their 2014 FIFA World Cup campaign on Saturday afternoon against Italy. DeMerit also chimed in on who he thinks might get the nod up top for Italy: Mario Balotelli or Ciro Immobile.
